Anyone use a hammock at sea?

In the days of iron men and wooden ships, much of the crew slept in hammocks. A good sea berth with lee cloths seems to be the norm on yachts today.

What about the good ol' hammock? Anyone ever tried it at sea? Seems like a gimbaled bed might have merit....

Re: Anyone use a hammock at sea?

I plan on getting a center aft berth in my ocean boat (I just like them). But I honestly will figure out how to rig a hammock back there for passages. It just makes all kinds of sense.

I don't think you should be bragging about a small banana hammock. Just sayin

Re: Anyone use a hammock at sea?

I often thought that adding some hammocks is a great way to get a few more berths into your cabin, if you have extra company. (that's not what she said is it...?) My cabin is too short for this but it would work in most 30 footers I imagine

Re: Anyone use a hammock at sea?

I suggest you first try sleeping in a hammock on dry land - your back will probably never forgive you.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
